On Being a Parent, and Obnoxious EULAs

For my own future reference, Otter Escaping North recently posted two excellent comments about being a geek parent in a recent Slashdot discussion about PC parental controls. The whole article is worth reading (though I always read at +3), but Otter's really resonated with me.

And from the world of obnoxious EULAs comes this gem from Live365's software player for Windows:

"You may not alter, merge, modify, adapt or translate the SOFTWARE
PRODUCT, or decompile, reverse engineer, disassemble, or otherwise
reduce the SOFTWARE PRODUCT to a human-perceivable form."

So hexdump -C is out, then? Or looking at it with less? Sigh…
